Gomorrah, Baby unearths the cities under the city. A woman walks through a city of crumbling cliffsides, cobblestone alleys, old stone churches, and a winding river dividing it from its western twin. She becomes the lynchpin that holds the city to the earth against the outcry, the pouring down, the small destructions. As people in love with cities have done for centuries, the woman builds a delicious nightmare to stand in front of the slow, unbearable losses. She melds horror with beauty, as if there were any other way to love and belong to a city. Gomorrah, Baby is a love story and a ghost story.
